Spiderman, Spiderman, Does Whatever a Spider Can...

I took Joe to see Spiderman 3 today. On the whole, I enjoyed it. While the multi-villain approach made the 80s Batman movies extremely topheavy, this film carried it off exceptionally well. Every character and subplot supported the main theme & plot. I also enjoyed the fact that while there was some drama, it wasn't swimming in overblown pathos the way Spiderman 2 was- (forgive me, but this is a big problem I have with the Harry Potter books as well. Sigh- life is just SO unfair for our poor little Harry...) In fact, I would say that this is the best of the three if not for the fact that the first Spiderman film had a great wet-t-shirt shot. Sigh. Maybe on the special edition DVD...
